New shipping service welcomed by Chamber

New shipping service welcomed by Chamber

A new direct container shipping service between Wellington and the Americas and Europe will be welcomed by exporters and importers in central New Zealand, says the Wellington Chamber of Commerce.

Chief Executive John Milford says today’s announcement by CentrePort will help make exporters and importers in the Wellington region and beyond more competitive.

“A direct service means lower costs and less time to market, and that’s a vital ingredient in today’s world where speed is of the essence. It’s also good news for consumers.

“CentrePort is to be congratulated on a job well done in attracting this service. It has been working hard on building extra reliable and regular access to markets.

“This is a further vote in favour of the region’s economy, and fits perfectly with investments the port has already made – including plans to deepen the shipping channel for bigger ships – and others which have made in roads and rail to create an efficient transport system in the lower North Island.”
